Baked Chili Pepper Fries
6 large jalapeno peppers
4 large poblano peppers
1 cup all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons
3 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove the seeds from all of the peppers and cut into 1/2-inch lengthwise strips.
Set up a breading station: 1 pan of 1 cup of flour, 1 pan of eggs beaten with milk, 2 tablespoons of flour and mustard, and 1 pan of bread crumbs seasoned with cheese, and salt and pepper, to taste.
Coat the peppers in the flour, then in the egg mixture and then in the bread crumbs.
Arrange the chili fries on a cooling rack set onto a baking sheet and roast for 18 minutes.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Serve with Creamy Texas Ranch or another favorite dipping sauce.
